For best carrots, soil should be loose textured and cultivated very deep. If you cannot cultivate very deep use short rooted types of seed. After germination, thin seedlings well. Sometimes these seedlings can be very sweet to the taste. Fertilize when foliage is 6 to 8 inches high. Harvest when carrots are about the size of your finger, up to about 2 inches in diameter.
I am just your average joe who goes to work everyday and pays the bills, but I do have a hobby of gardening which was handed down to me by my grandfather who gardened during the Great Depression to survive in the mountains of pa.
I do have other hobbies like surfing the net and blogging. I like to go camping and I love the outdoors.
